Well it’s begun. Now that the cat is completely out of the bag about my much sooner than anticipated big move, the good-byes have started. I don’t know if I can handle this being dragged out! It’s going to tear my little heart out. Can we just have one little moment where I just say “ok, see ya later!” and drive off?? Like a band-aid. It will just be much better for me since I’m prone to crying. A lot.
I had so much fun though going to dinner and spending quality time with these ladies. I’m coming to very consciously appreciate the amazing friends that I have here in this town and I’m really so, so sad to leave them. Hey everyone, just move with me! That will solve all of this! 🙂
We went to Olive Garden and I got the stuffed chicken Marsala. YUM!!! Except I felt really weird about going to Olive Garden and not eating pasta, so I switched out the mashed potatoes that come with the chicken to angel hair. I thought it was a great trade. I saved half of it and can’t wait to come home from church to eat it for lunch!!
I spent a good chunk of yesterday going through my clothes and getting rid of things I haven’t worn for…well years. I’m trying to reduce the amount of things that I have to move. It was hard. Suddenly I found myself very attached to some scarves I had completely forgotten I owned. Speaking of scarves, I probably got rid of at least 10. Not exaggerating. I also probably have at least 10 left. I have a problem.
Ok guys, I need your expertise. I REALLY want to take all the t-shirts I acquired over college (which is a LOT) and have a quilt made of them (like the one above). This fulfills two purposes. 1) I finally get rid of all those shirts and open up room in my drawers. 2) I still kind of get to keep them forever as a super awesome quilt, which will always keep me warm! However, I don’t know if I should just pay someone to do it for me or do it myself. I’ve had a few friends offer to make one with me but I just don’t know if I want to spend the time doing it. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that my sewing abilities are fairly basic. I can patch holes, sew buttons, etc. I’ve never made anything from scratch since my 7th grade home ec class.
So what do you think? Should I make it or pay for it?? Have you ever made one? Are they difficult?
Do you find yourself strangely attached to things when you’re trying to declutter?
